. talk to your doctor. ♪ >> jennifer: on the campaign front, mitt romney started his day in iowa stumping for its six electoral votes, but before he made his policy pitch, he took a jab at the obama times with real serious issues, so you have to scratch your head when the president spends his time the last week talking about saving big bird. >> jennifer: actually mitt it was you who first mentioned killing big bird in the debate. >> big yellow a menace to our economy, mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. >> mitt romney taking on our enemies no matter where nay nest. >> jennifer: joining me from los angeles is current tv's always outspoking stephanie miller.

. >> jennifer: i want to talk to you about your book, but i want to ask you about the six studies that he cites. romney has also said that six studies mean that my math adds up. >> as you pointed out those studies were not really studies. some of my favorite economists as soon as paul ryan said that started to tweet really madly because economists, you know for them a study means something, and i'm sad to say they don't consider a blog written by a mere journalist to be the same as an academic study. >> jennifer: part of it assumes this wild growth that will happen as a result of the cut in taxes. >> right. this is what a george bush called voodoo economics. you can cut taxes as much as you want, as long as you are prepared to savagely cut spending. there is a lack of transparency shall we say in really spelling how much are you going to cut. and to accommodate that level of cuts and balance the budget require savage cuts. >> jennifer: today just quickly, because i want to talk about your book. there's a number of -- of objective economic indicators that have come o
